FACT OF CRYSTAL by Abbie Huston Evans

Email this review


An unassuming small book of verse with a remarkable lucidity introduces a new talent. Writing apparently from a northern seaboard, the author, who is of Welsh extraction, has a natural poetic gift, and brings to each poem- whether some facet of nature or more philosophical insight- such vividness that each poem shines by its own fiercely generated light. These poems are modern, but not because they are private or obscure, but because they observe the world as it is around us in all its astounding, unfolding plurality. Here it assumes much of the animation, joy and wonder of this poet's truly lyrical vision.
